The Heico HS7, based on the new Volvo V70 T6, is fitted with electronically controlled all-wheel drive (AWD with Instant TractionTM) and six gear automatic drive with Geartronic function. With Heico SPORTIV tuning, Volvo's newly developed 3.0 liter 6-cylinder in-line turbo engine develops 243 kW (33! 0 bhp) at 5600 rpm and accelerates the station wagon to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) in just 6.2 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (156 mph).
Optical similarities with the Volvo S80 High Performance Concept recently unveiled at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas are intended, no question. The Heico HS7 also has a re-designed front grill, a well-defined front skirt with more conspicuous spoiler flaps, enlarged air vents and a better dimensioned charge air cooling system.
The modified rear skirt of the Heico HS7 now perfectly surrounds the four round tailpipes, giving an overall impression of a harmonious and perfectly designed tour de force from every perspec-tive. The corresponding stainless steel exhaust system starts behind the catalytic converter, improves the responsiveness of the engine and provides for a pleasingly sonorous engine sound.
Heico SPORTIV places emphasis on stylish details in the high quality interior: pedals, foot rest and door pins finished in aluminium, with the stainless steel Heico SPORTIV entry-strip logos being illuminated in an exquisite blue tone when the doors are opened.
